1959 FENDER “HIGH POWER” TWEED TWIN
Photo by Ken Settle
In this 16-minute exposure, music photographer Ken Settle captured the glow of his
mint-condition Fender Twin’s original Tung-Sol 5881s. This 85-watt “High Power” version of the Twin was introduced in 1958 and produced through 1959, making it one of
the rarest of the Fender tweeds. Settle purchased the amp in 1975 in Detroit for $550.
